Less than a decade ago, many residents marveled at signs of renewal in Chelsea. These days, it’s quite a feat to find properties available for sale or rent. With charming townhouses, lofts and new condominiums setting the market demand for Chelsea properties have reached an all time high. No longer does it take second billing from the West Village in luxury living; some will argue it is even setting the trend. Great restaurants and clubs are only part of the reason residents find this area hot, fun and trendy. Flexibility in space and layouts is also a crucial factor. Some points of interest include the Chelsea Pier, the Chelsea Hotel and some remnants of what was “Little Spain” on 14th Street and Eighth Avenue. Some of the finest luxury rental buildings and condominiums have been recently completed to offer Chelsea residents the luxury of uptown in a downtown setting.
Boundaries: North of 14th Street, South of 28th Street, West of Fifth Avenue to the Hudson River.
